"We like the standalone strategy and I think we felt we had a once in an industry opportunity to do a game changer," says Duncan Niederauer, NYSE Euronext CEO, who adds they are disappointed but not surprised about the merger falling through. The blocked merger is a missed opportunity for Europe and investors around the world he says; with Jan-Michiel Hessels, NYSE Euronext chairman, who adds the deal would accelerate the execution of the NYSE Euronext strategy, but the company is in good shape.
